John Glenday for The Drum:

The traveling marketing activation invites viewers to immerse themselves in official merchandise, take a ride on a double-decker ‘Believe Bus’ and get snapped in outsize themed photo installations ahead of a scheduled clash between LAFC and Sporting KC.

To mark the success of the show, it is lassoing American Football fans to discover the delights of soccer with the promise of free food, games and a live DJ.

Taking the format directly to fans of American football, Apple is bringing its fan experience to different neighbourhoods of Los Angeles for three one-off events scheduled for August 4, 7 and 8.

From unlikely beginnings, Ted Lasso has risen to become a jewel in the crown of Apple TV+, gathering an impressive 20 Emmy nominations for the cast led by Jason Sudeikis.

  1. It smells like COVID is not to be feared when it suits Big Tech, Hollywood, MSM News and Social Media. Time to blow up those asshoes narrative of lockdowns, social distancing, masks and deadly vaccinations with as much napalm as needed!

    1. The event today is a tailgate for fans attending a major league soccer match hosted by the Los Angeles Football Club. Patrons are required to provide proof of being fully vaccinated and must remain masked at all times except when actually consuming food or drink.

      1. You know, because you can’t catch the oh-so-deadly, makes-bubonic-plague-look-like-nothing, let’s-just-open-every-election-so-we-can-add-in-as-many-Democrat-votes-as-we-need COVID-19 when actually consuming food or drink.

        Oil and water mix better than Democrats and logic.

        1. I’m not going to explain how reducing the time of exposure proportionately reduces the chance of getting or passing along an infection because you would obstinately pretend not to understand. The risk of exposure is already pretty low when you are outside with a group that is all fully vaccinated and mostly masked. In many cases, the people sitting closest rode with you in a car to the stadium, so they have no additional risk. The goal is not 100% protection, and never has been, just the avoidance of readily avoidable risks.

          1. "Do you realize because of you, this town is being overrun by baboons." "Well, isn't that the fault of the voters?!" - Naked Gun 2 1/2 The Smell of Fear

            The Left sure likes to pick and choose what is and what is not “the avoidance of readily avoidable risks.” Like Biden’s wide open southern border and Pelosi’s mask mandate, where on the other side of the building, the Senate requires no mask. And of course, Obama’s 60th Birthday bash of 600 people that has since been nixed, but really, for the supposed smartest people in the world who have governed us, they sure do a lot of stupid shit!

          2. Thank you Txy, please do NOT explain again. We know, we know, the goal is not 100% protection, it is perfect deltaPLUS protection.

            Because we ALL want to “reduce the time of exposure proportionately to reduce the chance of getting or passing along a deltaPLUS infection…” we have this…

            AOC’s fake mask photoshoot on the steps of the Capital (catch the video before it is deleted, blocked, hidden). Our star, AOC is maskless in a tightly packed crowd of a hundred maskless superspreader deltaPLUSporn fans… she and Sen. Ed Malarkey (Dem from MA) put their theatrical delta PLUS masks on SECONDS before they snap the photo. Those are the only two masked up in the photo. Yeppp… masks off immediately after the photo. Maybe PelosiPLUS will arrest her (which would be a good thing). Shouldn’t we “worry” about the new new variant sweeping the nation?
            The lefty wacko Democrat farce deltaPLUSporn variant?

            I’ve also put Obama’s superporn-birthday-spreader event on my calendar, too. Yeah yeah, I already know he reduced the number of guests (and staff) from 600 down to 525, so you don’t have to bore us with your biased and curated Google search out of context CDC spun numbers. Do you really think it is necessary or responsible to have 525 (524 if you don’t count The O himself) attend a party during a super deltaPLUSporn pandemic breakthrough outbreak existential threat event?

            Side note, if Trump had had even a cupcake for his birthday, we’d still be hearing the press b–ch about it. (watch as Txy Googles that one… this is fun!)

            So glad I got that calendar to jot down all those fake dictator Demmie deltaPLUSporn events. Wouldn’t wanna miss one… or more than one

      2. How’s it going today, TxLoser? I’m always concerned about your general safety due to your obvious lack of brainpower, Ruprecht. Don’t hurt yourself twisting logic into shreds trying to fit it to your warped worldview.

      3. Why has the town of McAllen, TX declared an emergency? Maybe people refusing the vaccine? DeltaPLUSporn cases on the rise? Why is McAllen constructing emergency shelters for thousands of INFECTED illegals? Maybe the “covid” hotels comm-ndeered by Biden can’t handle the vast numbers of illegals pouring into their town? 1,500 new cases in McAllen (illegals) in last two weeks alone. Current population of McAllen 157,000 up from 150,000 in February 2021.

        Towns of La Joya and Weslaco are having the same problems with illegals, infected illegals and this fake administration.

        Those naughty Texans are spreading deltaPLUSporn! Maybe the feds should put the entire population of Texas on the terrorist no-fly-list.

        Start Googleing!

  2. Like AOC’s fake mask photoshoot on the steps of the Capital? She is maskless in a tightly packed crowd of maskless fans… she and Senator Ed Malarkey (Dem from MA) both put their fake masks on SECONDS before they snap the photo. Those are the only two masked up in the photo. Yeppp… masks off immediately after the photo. Maybe Pelosi will arrest her (which would be a good thing). What a lefty wacko Democrat photo pornfarce!

    (TXy, if you are reading, this is another one for the calendar I bought. One may not be enough to document all the crap being shoveled on US law abiding citizens).

    1. Are the people finally waking up to the COVID scam? You know, I’m referring to the average sheep who get their “info” from CNN, PMSNBC, etc. – like TxUssr – are they finally wising up?

      1. I do not get my news from any of those sources, but I have read the DC masking order. It does not require anyone—much less fully-vaccinated individuals—to wear a mask outside. It does request compliance with DC Health Guidelines, which I have also read, and which state that full-vaccinated persons are safe to go without a mask outside.

        https://coronavirus.dc.gov/healthguidance

          1. Florida is doing a bang-up job like Texas. Between June 30, 2020, and July 28, 2021, New York State (where residents were encouraged to follow public health advice) had 23,295 Covid deaths, Florida (where residents were left “free”) had 34,175, and Texas had 50,295. That speaks for itself.

            20,000 human lives seems a high price to pay to improve Governor Abbott’s political standing with Trump voters. The thousands of additional deaths in Florida would be on their Governor’s conscience… if he had one.

            1. Is this fake administration complying down at the border? They do know that we are in the midst of a deltaPLUSporn breakthrough existential threat event, don’t they? You think 9/11 was bad? Mass extinction event killing the dinosaurs? According to cdc.midterms.misdirection.gov, this is wayyy worse!

            2. If you want a roof over your family’s head and food on the table, it is nice to be able to go to work in FL. Can’t say that for some other states with ridiculous (and useless) lockdowns. So, which is it, Tyx? Which way is best? Destroy livelihoods and life savings and get covid or live your life and get covid? I don’t see where or how FL is worse off than any other state.

              Nice of you to Google all of those impressive numbers and present them out of context. How about compare numbers state by state January 2020 to July 2021.

              Remember to include all of Cuomo’s nursing home deaths (and the women he harassed)!

              New York State (where infected nursing home residents were forced to follow public health orders and be removed from hospitals and sent to their deaths at nursing homes). Bang-up job!

        1. “But you have read the DC m-andate”

          Yeah yeah they were outside… BUT they were all crowded and hugging…maskless. Wow, so safe during a scary deltaPLUSporn breakthrough outbreak! So, according to the revered and worshiped CDC guidelines, hugging deltaPLUSporn infected maskless people is FINE if you are outdoors? Is that what you are saying, Txy? Cause that is what happened, DC m-andate or not.

          So why are Pelosi and Nadler are running around maskless INSIDE the Capital? Maybe because they are commie dictators are all liars and hypocrites. Maybe they are suicidal. Maybe they are murderous mutation factories.

          Maybe THAT explains the vaccine hesitancy preventing you from achieving ultimate perfect deltaPLUSporn protection.

        2. What does the all-knowing follow every changing science “guidance” from the trusted commie health czars say about masked students not returning to socially distanced in-person classes with fully vaccinated masked teachers? TXy, you don’t feel the tiniest bit weird that teachers unions are refusing to return to the classroom next month? What is the hold up? How many children in the US have ALREADY recovered from covid (Google that!)? When will kids get back to “normal” in class education (if you can call it that anymore – but that is a different topic)? After the 2022 midterms – that would be spring semester 2023? After the 2024 election? 2028 election? 2032?

          Nobody in DC will go on record addressing this issue, will they? Telling, isn’t it? Yep!

    1. It does not matter if I agree with the order or not. The point is that it does not require outside masking, so the group with AOC were not hypocritically violating the public health guidance they expect everyone else to follow. They were following the advice of the local public health department to the letter, unlike all the yokels who are swamping hospitals because they wanted to assert their right to infect others by refusing to follow any guidance.

      1. Sorry, but the only “yokel” I’m seeing is you! And you are defending the side (politicians, big Pharma, WHO, CDC, Big Tech, Social Media, and the MSM) that has been more corrupt than trustworthy during the 2020 shamdemic. I’d go further explaining, but will not, “because you would obstinately pretend not to understand.”

        …so, STOP DIGGING!!!

        1. Exactly how were they “untrustworthy?” They gave detailed advice. In a state where people followed the advice (New York) 23k died in the last 13 months, In a state with almost exactly the same population (Florida) where people outside the big cities were told the advice wasn’t important, 34k died. The gap was even larger between the death rate in New York and Texas.

          1. Well, if YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and the rest allowed CREDENTIALED people like doctors, researchers, and scientists who ether had a differing point of view OR were on the bandwagon but due to the results, changed sides, you might listen to reason. HOWEVER, you throwing out numbers, means zilch to me. It’s like climate change scientists fudging the numbers to match their hypothesis. It’s like COVID death numbers. If you had COVID, you died from COVID. Never mind the car crash you were in that gave you severe head trauma. Now you have vaccine death numbers being swiped away because VAERS reported vaccine deaths have not been confirmed or deemed causal by CDC. Hey CDC, but you confirmed EVERY COVID death being from COVID right?!?

            Shoot, that 3:00 AM counting of Biden votes after the counting was initially stopped and the Republican observers and the news media were sent home and then counting resumed, I bet you believe all those count numbers were totally legit.

            SMH

            1. If anything, the US Covid-19 mortality numbers derived from death certificates is too low by up to 25-30%.

              One study shows that from January 26, 2020, to February 27, 2021, there were 506,760 official Covid-19 deaths. The difference between the actual number of total US deaths during that period and the number that would be expected in a non-epidemic year is between 545,000 and 660,000 excess deaths. That number includes both undetected SARS-CoV-2 infections and people whose deaths were caused indirectly by the pandemic (e.g., people with a heart attack who could not get into an Intensive Care Unit because there were no available beds).

              Citation: Rossen LM, Branum AM, Ahmad FB, Sutton PD, Anderson RN. Notes from the Field: Update on Excess Deaths Associated with the COVID-19 Pandemic — United States, January 26, 2020–February 27, 2021. MMWR Morb Mortal Wkly Rep 2021;70:570–571. DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.15585/mmwr.mm7015a4

              Another study published in the leading medical journal The Lancet found 766,611 excess deaths between March 8, 2020, and May 29, 2021, which includes 184,477 COVID-19 deaths not documented on death certificates. That is a 24% undercount.

            1. They are trustworthy because they correctly predicted that people who ignored their advice were substantially more likely to die. States with mask and distancing requirements had lower death rates than those without. States and counties with low vaccination numbers have high death rates. Again, what about that makes them untrustworthy?

            2. and you anonymous coward troll constantly attacking the most civic-minded person on these forums should be considered trustworthy??????

              ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

              the only things you fscking trolls ever stand for is greed, laziness, and backwards traditions that you have gerrymandered to your favor.

              Apple and the future generations are happy to see your ilk dying off. go maskless, don’t wash hands, and avoid all immunization. the gene pool needs cleaning of the scum like you

          2. How did New York’s advice workout for the elderly PRIOR to “the last 13 months”?

            Could there be other factors behind your Google-curated numbers? Were the age and individual health conditions of deceased factored in? How old were the covid patients (deaths) in each state? How about the median age of each states’ population? Do older populations have more co-morbidities? How do age and health conditions contribute to deaths in a given population. I’m not qualified to answer these questions. Neither are you, I’m guessing. However, we’re allowed to ask, aren’t we? Oh, we aren’t. We aren’t allowed to think, ask, investigate. We are only allowed to “follow the experts’ guidance.” Uh huh, yeah. Nope.

            Regarding New York and Texas – how many infected illegals have been bussed or flown to each respective state in the last seven month? Where are those numbers? Does the CDC have numbers on covid cases amongst illegals? Now there is one statistic you are guaranteed to NOT find online. Strange, isn’t it. Or maybe the answer is zero?

            Did you know that Taiwan provides its population daily briefings with an EXACT case count separated by origin of case? EACH and EVERY case in the entire country is listed as being a “local” case or “imported” case (brought into Taiwan via airport or port). Can this fake administration provide the numbers of (illegally) imported covid cases? If not, maybe we can get that info from the towns of Mc Allen, Weslaco and La Joya, Texas. They might know (Biden doesn’t know – he doesn’t care).

            Do Democrats WANT more covid cases in Texas (and Florida)? Does TXy gloat at higher case numbers? Is that appropriate?

            Why are there THOUSANDS of new cases in Texas within the newly imported illegal alien population? Who is in charge of the borders?

            Did the thousands of newly imported illegal covid cases in McAllen, Texas lead the small town to declare an emergency? Are those cases the result and responsibility of Abbott or Biden. Who is paying for the testing and EXPENSIVE treatment of the infected illegals (answer: we are)?

            Life doesn’t live within Google. Life is all around us. We are in it. Unfortunately, this administration doesn’t have our health, safety or best interests in mind.

            Again, why is the southern border open? And don’t give us the Psaki word salad politician answer. We have already heard that one… more than once.

            Why has China been so successful at controlling covid? Barely any cases there. How is Sweden doing? Shouldn’t we follow there leads?

          3. Yawn. This isn’t the polio vaccine. It isn’t acceptable to force people to get the vaccine. People have the right to choose. You know, ‘My Body, Your Right” is only acceptable in China (and a few other countries where nobody wants to live). Notice not a lot of Americans emigrating to China where covid is totally under control. Txy, ever wonder why that is? Ever think about it? The answer is that because even the most mismanaged state… the state with the most deaths no matter which way you want to count them… is just so damn much better than China. Why is that?

            Anyone from CA, TX, NY, FL moving to Cuba? Emigrating to China? Mexico? How about Venezuela? Gee, not a whole lot of people. Why is that? Because someone in your state didn’t get vaccinated? No! Grow up, TXy. Put Google away and open your eyes to your own posh life in the States. In the States and some other countries there is another variable in play… FREEDOM.

            You want to live in a free society (people existing together in an ordered community sharing similar customs, laws and organization)? You want that taken away? You want to give it away? You want the government to control and force you? A few people in the United States prefer individual choice. Some like control and responsibility for their own lives (and bodies).

            This is not an issue of Googled numbers. It is not percent of people vaccinated or number of patients in the ICU. It is a political issue. It is an issue of a communist/ socialist government overreaching. Blocking, controlling your speech. Limiting and controlling your movements – where you can / can’t go. Where you can / can’t work.

            In the United States, the people give the power to the government to govern the people. Not the other way around. Covid is a medical issue, to be sure. Nobody disputes that. Nobody WANTS to get sick. But, covid is also being weaponized for political gain. That is wrong. That is governmental overreach.

            What kind of country do you want to live in? Want zero cases? Good! Me too. But, I’m not willing to move to China for zero cases. Maybe you are.

      2. If AOC wasn’t breaking any m-ndates, laws or policies, why did she have to put her mask on for the photo? Because she is a hypocrite. Isn’t’ she fully vaccinated? Aren’t we at HIGH existential threat risk of spreading to the unprotected? It is deltaPLUSporn.

        Yes, it is hypocritical to threaten Americans with perm-nent mask m-ndates, threaten arrest, suggest adding unvaccinated to the terrorist no-fly-list (thank you Laurene Powell Jobs) and then break your own policies (Pelosi and Naddy).

        Why did the runaway from home Texas Demmie go maskless on their busses and flight to DC? Didn’t five of them get the deltaPLUSporn after arriving in DC?

        1. As President Reagan said, “There you go again!”

          Why did AOC put on her mask before the photo?As all the articles about the event clearly explain, she was giving an interview nearby and took off her mask so that the socially distanced vaccinated reporter could hear her against the outside noise. She put the mask back on after she rejoined the group.

          Why weren’t the Texas legislators masked? Again, it is undisputed that all of them were vaccinated and were following the then-current guidelines that did not require masks if no unvaccinated person was present.

          Why is there a picture circulating on the Internet of Pelosi and Nadler talking in the House Chamber without masks? The picture was taken on December 18, 2019, when nobody had even heard of the novel coronavirus.

          Why was she unmasked at a swearing in? Because the new Texas Republican Congressman (a loyal Trump supporter) and his family requested a photo with the Speaker, which required a few vaccinated individuals to remove their masks for a few seconds.

          Why did she order unmasked individuals to be arrested? She didn’t. The Attending Physician to Congress, who is appointed by the US Navy and served throughout the Trump Administration, asked the Capitol Police to warn Members of Congress and their staff to wear masks and refer those who refused to the Sergeant at Arms of the relevant house. Non-members were to be warned and barred from entry to the Chamber. Pelosi’s only “crime” was to request the Members to honor the Attending Physician’s directive.

          Why always choose a complicated conspiracy theory when Okham’s Razor tells us that the simplest explanation is almost always the best explanation? Beats me.

          1. Why did AOC put on her mask before the photo? As all the articles about the event clearly explain, she was giving an interview nearby and took off her mask so that the socially distanced vaccinated reporter could hear her against the outside noise. She put the mask back on after she rejoined the group.

            I will not dispute your account of the events. But, just look at it from another point of view.

            She was outdoors, so she didn’t need a mask, so she was wearing a mask (which is her prerogative), but took her mask off for an interview.
            She was socially distance from a vaccinated reporter, so she took her mask off. But, then was all snuggled up with 100 people NOT socially distanced and unmasked.
            Then she put her mask on for the photo along with Marlarkey – Dem. while all of the people around her were CLEARLY unmasked and, unlike the interview with the reporter, NOT socially distanced AT ALL.

            So, TXy thank you for that account of events, but, just want to let you know that it makes NO sense whatsoever. None. Only thing that makes sense is that she put her mask on (one of only two masked left wingers) for the fake photo and then took it off.

            Was she protecting the photographer while he/ she/ it pressed the shutter button?

            Again, makes no sense. If it was for theatrical purposes, then it would make sense.

            1. As for Nadler, his most famous mask-malfunction was July 28, 2020 when he removed his mask to scold republicans for not properly wearing their masks. Typical behavior expected from him.

              Then there is his maskless photo on Twitter from July 30, 2021.

              I will have to check my calendar, but both occurred after 2019. Although, it can be hard to tell with numbers and math being racist.

          2. Why is there a picture circulating on the Internet of Pelosi and Nadler talking in the House Chamber without masks? The picture was taken on December 18, 2019, when nobody had even heard of the novel coronavirus.

            Pelosi took her mask off on July 30, 2021 for the swearing in of Jake Ellzey. Why is there a video of that circulating on YouTube? Deep fake? Probably not. Okham’s Razor tells us that Peolsi is a hypocrite dictator.

            Maybe you should buy a calendar and then check when YOU heard about the novel coronavirus

          3. Why was she unmasked at a swearing in? Because the new Texas Republican Congressman (a loyal Trump supporter) and his family requested a photo with the Speaker, which required a few vaccinated individuals to remove their masks for a few seconds.

            A few seconds? Irrelevant.
            Republican? Does deltaPLUSporn variant differentiate? Let me check CDC.gov
            Trump supporter? Didn’t know there was a special variant just for Trump supporters. Maybe you should check the science on that one.

            I know you read Peoli’s m-ndate. Was there a clause in it about the Speaker being REQUIRED to remove her mask when swearing in Trump supporting Republicans? Sounds scientific to me. We always follow the latest data. We sure do!

            AOC was able to take a unsocially distanced photo with her covid costume mask on. I’m sure Pelosi could have kept her costume on as, well. You know, just to be safe and perfectly protect everyone.

          4. “Why weren’t the Texas legislators masked? Again, it is undisputed that all of them were vaccinated and were following the then-current guidelines that did not require masks if no unvaccinated person was present.”

            Including air travel. Yeah, you try taking your mask off next time you are at 30,000.

          5. What the h-ll is biden doing (or not doing) at the border?

            Since you are on a roll, how about you tackle the open infected illegal border covid issue. And the declaration of an emergency in McAllen, TX.

            I would really like to get to the root causes via a reliable scientific source.

            1. The Hidalgo County situation, as their emergency declaration and the mayor’s statements reflect, involves persons legally in the US. They are here because US statutes and treaty obligations say they can be here. They are testing positive at no higher rate than long-term residents of the county.

              That seems to be a distinction that is unclear to our Governor, who moved hundreds of state troopers down there with orders to stop any vehicle containing passengers who looked “foreign.” That might be a problem in a county where 90.9% of the population are Mexican-Americans, but fits into Abbott’s project to blame anybody but himself for 50,000 Covid-19 deaths.

  3. “Honor the Attending Physician’s directive”

    That makes my panties wet. Yum!

    “Referred to the Sergeant at Arms of the relevant house”

    For being fully vaccinated and not wearing a mask? Doesn’t that seem just a little bit much?

  4. TxFloozie:

    FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, you twisted apologist for anything Commie dictators love—don’t you have a fu**ing LIFE? We don’t need; we don’t want your bullhorn style propaganda lectures 10 times for every article that doesn’t fall within your MFing stupid worldview. Get the F-out of here. You neither know more than any of us or have a more valid opinion than anyone here. Drop dead you pedantic asshole.
